VOCATIONAL 



OUR TECH IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR PARTS: A COMPREHENSIVE 




HIGH SCHOOL, A SUMMER SCHOOL, AN ADULT EVENING 

SCHOOL, AND AN EIGHTH GRADE. 




Our Tech is not one but four progressive 
schools, in operation day and night, all 
seasons of the year, training youth and 
adults to enjoy life more fully through 
attaining a well-rounded education. It 
is a comprehensive high school, a popular 
summer school, a progressive evening school, 
and an energetic eighth grade. It is a cam- 
pus of 76 wooded acres with thirteen build- 
ings, eight dating back to Civil War days. 
It provides us with an education for citi- 
zenship, it guides us in human relations, 
it trains us for proper use of our leisure 
time, and it develops in us the desire for 
helpful home living and happy working hours. 
Yes, our Tech has one great aim— it inspires us 



. 



TO DEVELOP OUR TALENTS FOR A FRUITFUL 
LIFE IN AN UNSURPASSED COMMUNITY 



THE plaza in the quadrangle is a favorite place to stop for 
a chat during the lunch periods on a bright spring day.

BATHED in the warm afternoon sunlight, our majestic old Arsenal 
radiates warmth and friendliness to us as we pass through its 
doors, just as it has to many others before us.

IN winter when the snow covers the campus as well as in 
summer the Milo H. Stuart Memorial Hall tower is a most 
impressive sight through the tracery of the bare branches. 



TEEMING WITH ACTIVITY. 



A POPULAR walk, especially during lunch hours, 
leads from the Arsenal and Treadwell Hall to the 
Artillery Building which houses the lunchrooms. 



<^^Vy\^ 







WRITE A POEM, PROVE A THEOREM, DISSECT A FROG, 




READING! Reading! Reading! Classes in the Reading Laboratory 
concentrate to increase their reading speed. 




Study, grind, study, and then, study some more! 
Long themes, math projects, research, and home- 
work, all are part of that plot of teachers and 
parents to give this generation a good education. 
Academic subjects are required for high school 
and high schools are required for youth. It's 
doubtful if we teens would give up either. We 
learn of others and learn with others, studying 
English, math, languages, history, and sciences. 



OR REVIVE AN HISTORICAL EVENT, IT'S ACADEMIC 



Our teachers present the 
subjects interestingly and 
well. How can we resist 
learning, working to make 
better citizens of ourselves? 



AS they look forward to the day 
when their plants will bloom, repay- 
ing them for their hard work, Mr. 
McCoy's landscaping class builds a 
rock garden east of the Arsenal. 




MEMBERS of Monsieur Charles Martin's French IV class enjoy themselves when 
reading and acting out a play which is not in their own native language. 





JUDITH Woolbright patiently 
poses as Alberta Matzke applies 
her talents to a chalk drawing 
she is making in an art class of 
Mr. Schildknecht. 



AS the class watches, Miss Hilda 
Kreft demonstrates the wrong 
way to hold a coffee cup for 
her Social Practice class.

SING A SONG, TYPE 




Technically speaking, tech- 
nical subjects are workable 
subjects. They add spice to 
our school days; learning that 
can be applied today and in 
years to come. Business mind- 
ed youth flock down the halls 
to the wide variety of 
business classes, future 
housewives study the art of 
home economics, social butter- 
flies brush up on etiquette, 
and young artists develop 
artistic skills, each work- 
ing to build a career. 




A LINE, OR RUN A MILE, IT'S TECHNICAL! 



IN one of the classes in the busy Commercial 
department which prepares young people for 
positions directly after graduation from high 
school is Patricia Shipp who is taking dictation 
from Miss Arete Covey in Shorthand. 











WHILE other members of the Mechanical 
Drawing class work on their individual 
problems, Mr. Floyd Tobrocke discusses 
Robert Thorn's drawing with him. 



MR. John P. Lahr and his class 
in Retail Selling observe the 
correct procedure of salesman- 
ship as shown by Barbara Ellis 
as the sales girl and Evon Crick 
and Dean Patterson, customers.

TWO boys who may sometime be fam- 
ous for creating their own furniture 
designs are Carol Wood and Lloyd Mer- 
rill in Mr. Hanen's Cabinet-Making class.

HOUSE, PRINT A PAGE, PAINT A CAR, IT'S VOCATIONAL 



Along the winding walks 
on the west side of 
Tech, we trace our steps 
to the vocational shops. 
Dust and dirt, smouldering 
fires, pots of paints, 
hot lead, the clang of 
huge hammers, or the 
peckity-peck of lin- 
otype machines, all make 
the shops what they 
are. They inspire, they 
create, they build. They 
are the backbone of our 
school and community. 

BENCHES, stepping stones, and 
bird baths emerge from molds 
in Mr. Lampert's busy Cement 
Shop. 




WILLIAM Phillips and James Curl watch with 
interest as Mr. Deem explains to them the skill 
needed in running the Print Shop offset press. 



MR. PENCE explains the method of covering a plane 
wing to Robert Graves, Jerome Lee, Hugh Dougherty, 
Edward Row, and Lee Endicott in Airplane Mechanics. 





THEY ARE CAREFREE, THEY ARE HAPPY, THEY ARE BUBBLING 




LEARNING the fundamentals of carpentry, boys in Woodworking are taught 
how to wield a fancy hammer, to hit a nail on the head; and to saw in a 
straight line in order to make good shadow boxes for their bedroom walls. 







Our "grade school seniors" with 
their inquisitive enthusiasm, 
add a certain spice to Tech's 
life. Signs of this spice be- 
come apparent during the annual 
presentation of "the Eighth 
Grade's answer to the 



14 



OVER WITH ENERGY-THEY ARE OUR EIGHTH GRADERS. 



'Sketchbook' "-the "Scratch 
Pad". However, all talent is 
not confined to the stage. 
Talent for learning is dis- 
played in the classroom in 
subjects covering everything 
from dressmaking to block 
printing to theme writing. 
We know that we have the 
finest eighth grade found 
anywhere. Here students 
are being prepared for a full, 
happy, high school life, and 
subsequently, a good life in 
the community. 





STARTING on the domestic road are 
Saundra Jones and Judith Miller, learn- 
ing sewing principles in Miss Hardy's 
eighth grade class. 



ARMED with keen imaginations, 
a roller, paper, and paint, 
Anthony Martin and Reva Arnes 
find block printing interesting 
fun in Miss Betty Bayfield's 
eighth grade art class.

SUMMER SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF-Seated (left to

tary; Fred R. Gorman, director. Standing: Mrs. Elsie Wilcox, 
attendance; Herman Hinshaw, vice-principal. 




AS the sun glares brightly, the band gives forth with music during summer school, led by Mr. White. 



16 



FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE-THAT'S OUR SUMMER SCHOOL. 



A light summer breeze rustles 
through the trees, carrying with 
it voices of Tech's summer school. 
A strain of music, a vic- 
torious shout from the girls' 
play field, a giggle from a 
classroom, all drift away with 
the breeze. Unlike other 
schools, Tech's campus is spa- 
cious, making summer school a 
popular place. The warm sun en- 
courages students to find 
happiness in working together. 




EXPERIMENTS showing ways to test different plant parts for vari- 
ous kinds of foods were performed in Mr. John Kendrick's Botany I 
summer school class, to the delight of the students. 











SUMMER school can be fun, these square dancers have found, 
as they go through the intricate steps in Mrs. Day's class. 



17 




A SATURDAY morning class of hard-working apprentice bricklayers learns the art of handling a 
trowl and mortar, with this increased knowledge developing their ability to build arches, door- 
ways, and similar structures, using types of designs such as the basket weave. 



18 



STRIPPING down an old chair, a student learns the proper way 
to tie a roll of padding in place with cord and needle. 




mmmm 







IT'S CONTINUING OUR EDUCATION-IT'S OUR EVENING SCHOOL. 



When the lights of Tech go on, groups 
of silhouetted figures can be seen 
hurrying across the dimly lighted 
campus to Evening School. One 
wonders at the strength, the courage 
of these men and women, willing 
to continue their education 
after long hours of work in offices or 
homes. They come to finish high 
school requirements. They come to in- 
crease their skill in industry. They 
come to learn new hobbies or improve 
old ones. Most of all they come with 
the desire to develop interests and 
abilities which will make them more 
worthy community members. The wintry 
stars shine down on our busy 
campus as education is continued. 



AN interesting course is weaving where adults 
learn how to thread a loom, handle the shuttle, and 
design patterns for various woven articles. 




IN one of the more difficult classes, which 
is Electric Shop, men learn how to ferret out 
problems in television sets. 




MR. WETZEL, director of the Adult Evening School, enrolls 
a student in one of the many popular courses as the sec- 
retarial staff busily works on records. 






OUR General Superintendent of Education, Dr. Herman L. Shibler, is a welcome visitor at Tech. 



OUR SUPERINTENDENT IS A VERY BUSY MAN 



LOOKING at the Freedoms Foundation books which won a Prin- 
cipal Award for Tech are School Board members Mrs. Dale R. Da- 
Vee, Superintendent Shibler, Joseph Guidone. Standing: Morten 
Hansen, Leo M. Gardner, Grier M. Shotwell. 




Like all large organizations, 
a school city has its gov- 
erning body. Heading the 
Indianapolis public educa- 
tional system are Dr. Herman L. 
Shibler, general superin- 
tendent of Education, and the 
Board of School Commissioners. 
An important part of our 
school system, they control 
the "do's and don'ts" 
of our vast organization.

A SPECIAL friend of all Techites is our principal, Mr. H. H. Anderson. 



WE'RE FOND OF OUR PRINCIPAL 



When we meet our principal on the walks or in the halls, 
we scarcely realize that he is such a busy man because 
of his friendly smile and cordial greeting. He is a man 
who commands our friendship, our admiration, our respect. 



21 



WE PRESENT OUR OFFICIAL AIDES-DE-CAMP 




MR. H. H. ANDERSON, principal, holds a meeting with his administrative staff, com- 
prised of the five vice-principals and the dean of girls, to discuss a school project. They

their individual departments. As leaders they are 
continually at their work, preparing for the next day, 
the next week, and the next month, knowing that they must 
be ever ready to answer a thousand and one questions.

These are Tech's teachers, our guiding 
lights; the guardians of our hopes for 
the future, to whom we turn for aid in 
time of trouble and for friendship in time 
of peace. They are our inspiration, our 
doorway to success, and our most 
earnest well-wishers. They praise us when 
we do well and pick up the woken feelings 
when we fail. Their hopes for usNjrge 
us to try again, to reach for even greater 
accomplishments. They teach us the value 
of an education; its value for us and 
for the community. Theirs is the sat- 
isfaction of knowing this will be a 
better place in which to 
live for they have confidence in youth. 
Playing their parts with great skill and 
understanding, they guide us toward 
becoming better citizens for tomorrow.

CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES 




31 




OUR GALA CLUBS 



A school without co-cur- 
ricular activities is like 
spring without flowers or 
a house without windows. 
It lacks brightness and 
carefree joy. Tech, with 
its abundance of co- 
curricular activities 
provides its students with 
such a supply that if one 
were to indulge in all 
of them he'd simply be lost. 
The brief mention of future 
club meetings made 
in roll call each day,

gives us only a slight glimpse of 
all that goes on behind closed 
doors. Our thirteen clubs, our 
class contests, and other activities 
make for those of us who 
participate a very busy life. 
Meetings are held and from those 
meetings come plans for parties, 
special projects, glorious dances, 
and lots of work and fun for 
everyone. Tech takes pride in its 
many activities and the honors won by 
its special groups.

TECH IS THE HOME OF MANY MUSICAL GROUPS 



Through the green doors of Treadwell Hall echo sounds of a 

chorus of youthful voices, sometimes rollicking, and then, 

again, mellow, drifting down the long halls, blending 

in perfect harmony. Across the campus, from the 

Band Room comes the gay beat of Sousa's marching tunes, 

while from the old Barn float the strains of a 

violin or clarinet. All these blend to tell of happy 

youth in the department of Music. All Tech sings: 

sings of its joys, good times, and happy days.

AT the old-fashioned spelling bee, Scott McCoy as Squire Hawkins pronounces 
the words for Jim Morrison and Carol Frisbie (left), pitted against Emery Banta 
and Marilyn Gilliatte. 

THE HOOSIER SCHOOLMASTER' WAS TOPS! 



LAST-MINUTE touches hastily added 
before the performance are ac- 
complished by Marilyn Hawkins, 
Cevia Greenberg, and Marilyn Gil- 
liatte. 





HURRIEDLY applying make-up to the cast before the 
curtain rises are Mr. Wadleigh and Mr. Robert Maloy. 



High-top shoes, sunbonnets, and homespun 

dresses took the lead at Tech 

when Thespians presented "The Hoosier 

Schoolmaster," directed by Mr. Paul 

Wadleigh. Overalls and 

gingham dresses came back into 

style when the Square Dance Club, 

directed by Miss Helen Caffyn, danced, 

to the delight of the audience. It was 

a play packed with frontier humor, 

romance, and tense drama— 

the story of life in Southern Indiana 

in 1872, presented for our enjoyment. 




SWING your partner, do-si-do, it's country style for Paul 
Alger, Larry Turpin, Charles Stinson, Janis Shirley, 
Philip Shrigley, Sandra Potts, and Marilyn Hawkins as 
ihey sedately enjoy a square dance. 



ROBERT Adams, Stephen Mooring, John Wamp- 
ner, and Robert Killion finish dressing as Ed- 
ward Ross makes sure that the curtain ropes 
work. 



WHETHER actors or stage hands, Emery Banta, James 
Glaze, Richard Ayer, Courtland Ricketts, and Wil- 
liam Dollinger all work together to get the stage 
ready on time. 




There's no business like show business, 
as dramatic Techites well know. 
Rehearsing, painting, practicing, and 
rehearsing some more, they work to 
provide us with serious or 
side-splitting entertainment. Then 
with all the enchantment of an 
opening night, complete with the 
scenery, the lighting, the backaches, 
and the props, the principals step into 
the spotlight to win their ways into 
the hearts of an enraptured audience. 




MELVIN Critchlow, Jo Dollinger, and Donald Kelly 
presented a clever playlet at the Mardi Gras.

THE GRIDDERS TIED FOR NCC CROWN 

A Metropolitan Jinx hit the Big Green, co-champions 
of the rugged North Central Conference, following 
its initial city victory over Howe. After this 
triumph, the Greenclads failed to register 
another win in city competition. On the brighter 
side was Tech's fine showing in the Conference 
where the Green finished with a 4-0-1 record, 
including a sparkling upset over Muncie Central's 
Bearcats, supposed mythical State 
Champions. For the first time in several years, 
the Medium Green footballers finished their season

on the short end in the victory 
column. An obvious lack of size 
and experience hampered the B team 
throughout its schedule; it 
managed to win but one tilt while 
losing four and tying one. The 
smallest Green finished its 1954 
season with a dazzling record of 
five victories and one defeat 
while rolling up a grand total of 
184 points as opposed to 19 points 
for its opponents.

MEET OUR BASKET TOSSERS 



Led by sharp-shooting captain Carl Med- 
itch, our varsity hoopmen completed their 
season with a 13-7 record including a 
6-3 NCC finish, a 5-4 city standing, and 
a 2-0 county record. In addition to 
this, the Greenclads dropped two foes 
in the Sectionals before succumbing to 
Shortridge. In Coach Charles Maas' en- 
deavor to find the right starting combin- 
ation, all members of the varsity start 
a season tilt at least once during the 
season. However, most of the time the 
combination of Jim Stonebraker, Dave 
Dagwell, Oscar Ammer, Bob Weaver, and 
Carl Meditch clicked consistently.

Being a senior is not just wearing a 
iittle bow of ribbon, a ring, a 
cap and gown at graduation. 
Being a senior is something in- 
describable. It is the feeling of 
having achieved, of having grown up, 
of having become more a person than 
ever before. We seniors think we are 
the wisest, the oldest, the best; 
still, we are just at the threshold 
of life. To be a senior has been our 
goal; and the goal achieved, it 
is an honor to say, "I am a senior."

PREPARATION FOR LIFE IN THE COMMUNITY 




SKILLFUL GUIDANCE PREPARES US TO MEET THE FUTURE 



We are being taught like many before us have been 
taught, receiving an education that will help us 
throughout life. Tech, as one of the oldest 
comprehensive high schools in the country, can 
boast a long line of graduates who are 
successful in the community because of their start.

ing major, of Fran Schroeder and As- 
sociates, stands in the tower of Stuart 
Hall, the building he designed. 



at Tech. Soon we will be among these 
ranks. If we have taken advantage of the 
wide variety of courses offered, we 
will have the same chance at success, 
whether we enter a profession, go 
directly into industry or office work, 
or are content to be efficient homemakers. 




THOMAS Drake and Thomas Hayes, in Mr. 
Rosell's Architectural Drafting class, use 
reference material to check a drawing.

IN HOME ECONOMICS WE ARE 
PREPARED FOR HOMEMAKING 
AND FOR COMMUNITY LIFE 



"A woman's place is in the home" so 
they say, but many of the 
women's arts are going commercial. 
Whether it is for business 
or for preparation as a house- 
wife, Tech offers training. 
Everything from Social Arts and 
Family Living to cooking and sewing 
is in the well-chosen 
curriculum for both girls and boys. 



IN Mrs. Eccleston's Home Management 
class Alberta Day and Mary Lou Kern 
ask questions of Mrs. Stena Twiname, 
local firm meat cutting demonstrator. 



COMMERCIAL Cooking boys and girls 
learn quantity cooking by baking food 
for the cafeteria and cookies to sell. 



AMONG the many things taught on good grooming in Cosmetology is hair dress- 
ing, as shown by Mrs. E. Monninger, with Patricia McCormick, the customer. 



112 




OUR HEALTH IS GUARDED FOR 
TODAY AND FOR THE FUTURE 



Health is of major importance to a 
home, school, and community. Tech, 
with three registered nurses 
and a well equipped Health 
Center, guards pupils' health. 
Here, too, girls are 
taught elementary nursing to 
help them in their homes or to 
inspire them to enter the profession. 



BARBARA Whitney, who took Nursing 
at Tech, graduate of the Methodist Hos- 
pital School of Nursing, is in the ob- 
streptical department at the hospital. 



CONCENTRATING on the sound of the 
voice, Judith Jones takes a hearing test 
as Linda Farmer waits her turn. 




IN the Health Center, Ruth Williams interviewing students, Elloise Gill at the scales, 
and Charlene Hamersley taking notes, are preparing for a career in Nursing.

campus, a wonderful faculty, abundance 
of activities, and expert guidance, prepares 
us to look to the future with confidence.

Because of the training we receive we will be better 
citizens, better prepared to meet the world's present 
problems, better prepared to be good home- 
makers. Because we are given training in every 
aspect of life, we will be better equipped 
to meet the future in an unsurpassed community.

To our friends. 

How seldom we weigh our neighbors in the same 
balance with ourselves ... If we did, we would find 
there is very little difference between one and another. 

But what little there is is very important . . . we 
should remember, we are dependent on one another — 
every last soul of us on earth 

The guality, the prices, and the courtesies available 
to you, we trust will show our appreciation for your 
patronage.
